Having recently celebrated a big milestone of ten successful years in business, Hunter Recruitment Group is enjoying a phase of growth and a recent addition to the team.
Kathryn Blackmore recently joined the Hunter Recruitment Group team as Lead Employment Specialist.
Managing Director, Craig McGregor, said that Kathryn’s shared values with the business made her the ideal fit for the role.
“The mantra of Hunter Recruitment Group is about best fit and wanting to find the best available match for our clients and candidates. Kathryn’s values align seamlessly with that mantra and we are very excited to have her expertise on board,” Craig said.
Kathryn has worked in the recruitment industry locally for almost 20 years. Commencing her career with Drake International and more recently managing a boutique recruitment firm based in Maitland, Kathryn has a strong track record of successful placements and a passion towards being one of the most experienced recruiters in the Hunter market.
Hunter Recruitment Group is one of the only boutique firms offering the full spectrum of HR services across the entire employment life cycle, including temporary/labour hire, executive and permanent recruitment, HR consulting and career transition/outplacement.
“Recruitment and providing great clients with great staff will always be my first love, but I’m particularly looking forward to working with candidates through our career transition programs, assisting those who have recently found themselves redundant or retrenched. Helping those people to find their way in an ever-changing employment landscape will be a really great opportunity to give something back, using the knowledge I’ve built up over the past 20 years,” Kathryn said.
“With a young family, it’s important that I balance the demands of my work along with looking after my family. So I’m delighted to find a flexible and progressive workplace in Hunter Recruitment Group that allows me to continue to have a rewarding career along with the ability to be present in the lives of my children when they need me.”
Both Craig and Kathryn consider themselves true “generalists” in the recruitment world, both having a wealth of experience across blue and white collar appointments in labour hire, temporary staffing and executive appointments, thus allowing them to support clients across all of their resourcing needs.
“While many recruitment firms operate on a division or industry basis, our business focuses on really getting to know our clients, understanding their requirements and recognising good talent when it comes along,” Craig advised
“Kathryn will be a great addition to our team and I feel we are poised to offer Maitland and the greater Hunter the best possible recruitment experience. I am confident that she will bolster our already positive reputation and will be very well received by clients and candidates new and old” Craig said.
